Sore

by Meghann on October 11, 2012

Ouch! I woke up SORE today!

The soreness actually began creeping in last night. I could feel it in my arms, chest, and legs when ever I had to make a quick movement. Grabbing the tea bags from the top shelf was quite the experience after dinner. There were muscles hurting that I’m pretty sure I forgot I had. Hurt so good.

I was also so exhausted that I didn’t even get the chance to catch up on my games of Words with Friends in bed last night before I crashed. I was out pretty much as soon as I hit the pillow.

When I was at CrossFit yesterday, someone had a good quote “The workouts don’t get easier, but your body learns to recover quicker.” I hope that’s true because man do I hurt.

I decided to work the soreness out today by sticking with my planned interval run. As soon as my legs started moving the soreness seemed to fade away. I did my mile warmup then eased my way back into intervals by pushing myself for .25 then recovering with a jog for .25. Since I haven’t been doing any speedwork at all in the last 6 months, the short intervals were just what I needed. The back and forth of pushing and recovery lasted for the remaining 4 miles. I averaged an 8:15ish pace for the “fast” .25 and then 9:30ish during the recovery. The 5 miles took me a little more than 44 minutes to complete.

Baby steps. Baby steps.

After my run I got my foam roller out and had a good rolling session mixed with some downward dogs, upward dogs, and pigeon poses. My body needed a good stretch and a good stretch was what it got.

In the mix:

  • Plain Oikos
  • Peach
  • Peanut Butter
  • Walnuts

This peach was worse than the one I had on Monday. Blah. There’s still one more left in the fridge from the trio I bought Sunday, but I’m not even sure it’s worth eating. I might make a smoothie with it or simply toss it, I’m pretty sure it’s not worth eating as-is. So sad.
